My College Memory

My most memorable experience at JWU was when I had my turn to run the Statler Dining Room as a part of my final project in hospitality class. I completely created the atmosphere, from table décor to staff’s attire, to the font on the menu. It was my first chance to be “in charge.” I also created a guest list, which I made sure included my favorite JWU professors and family. My responsibilities included timing the execution of each course.

It was such a thrill to see all the hard work come together. I enjoyed working with the students in the class, we all made such an effort to work as a team and help each other have a successful and special night. Because we worked so well together, many of us are still friends and professional contacts.

My College Memory

After growing up in the military and starting high school in Germany, graduation and my college search in Tennessee was like speaking a foreign language. After finding a collegiate home at a liberal arts university, I quickly recognized a passion for college admission. When I was not cheering at football games or studying, I was working in the admission office. I particularly enjoyed picking prospective students up from the airport and helping with receptions at alumni homes. The idea of being the first person that a student met or being available to answer questions about my university brought me great joy. What I learned many years ago has always rang true: I am passionate about helping students and families in their college going journey. Whether I am at the local nursery buying plants for my yard, exercising at the health club, or having a meal, I can always make time to answer college questions.
